French Friday: convoqué Philipilihp French Friday: convoqué Philipilihp

Just paging VDH Customs here for French Friday! As I’m packing up my end of the deal: Do you want the HY regular or Pompiers?

Suburban Sundays: A Trio of Brown CUVs Suburban Sundays: A Trio of Brown CUVs

Hey LaLD! Today I’ve decided to try a new theme day. As you’ve probably noticed, a large portion of my 1:64 scale collection revolves around the delightfully mundane and everyday; thus, I propose that we have Suburban Sundays! This will be a showcase of all the cars that are average enough to be not particularly…

French Friday: Compte à Rebours... French Friday: Compte à Rebours...

Yeah I know, Le Mans is coming... But I still have to show you all this one. Although I think someone beat me to it. I mentioned it showing the DS23 as well so here it goes...

French Friday: Catching up to the Espace French Friday: Catching up to the Espace

As you likely recall, when Matra first approached PSA after its takeover at Simca/Chrysler they brought with them the “Dessin Orange”, an orange sketch of an MPV that they foresaw as the future of family transport. The subsequently cold response from PSA meant that the design went to Renault where it became the first…

French Friday: le Lion vaincu French Friday: le Lion vaincu

I know, I missed French Friday last week. Sorry. Then again, I added a ‘Murica Monday so... And it’s not often I miss it. So...

French Friday: Le Lion a mangé le marcheur French Friday: Le Lion a mangé le marcheur

Looks like a Peugeot D3. But Norev sells it as a Chenard-Walcker 1500. Which actually have a family-tie as Peugeot took over Chenard-Walcker while they were producing the 1500. That 1500 was for the amount of kgs it was able to carry.

French Friday: Le brochet verde French Friday: Le brochet verde

It had a little cameo last week, this Citroën DS23. Last week’s was the DS19, this one has the bigger engine and the bigger headlights. As in 1967, with the 2nd nose redesign, it’s light clusters grew significantly.

Teutonic Tuesday: Jetzt Schon??? Teutonic Tuesday: Jetzt Schon???

Wait, is it Tuesday again already? Darned! Got me some Norevs as I’ve shown last Friday and one of ‘m was the amazing Mercedes Benz 300 SL W198.

Regarde ce qui est arrivé ce vendredi français! Regarde ce qui est arrivé ce vendredi français!

It’s Norev’s new 3-inch Renault Megane RS! It’s absolutely stunning for the scale, with great detail in the (painted) lights, and a lovely metallic orange colour (Orange Tonic). Only the wheels aren’t great, as the spokes are pretty thin so probably hard to paint. I’ll take some better shots at a later moment, but I…

French Friday: Fin d'une courte période de vacances French Friday: Fin d'une courte période de vacances

As the weather in Italy was sooooo terrible this week we decided to return early and enjoy the weather at home a bit as the weather here is amazing. This weekend we’ll hit 25 degrees and that is, for the time of the year, pretty good. No time for a shoot due to the transit though so enjoy a regular visitor at LaLD’s,…

LaLD Engine Week 2018: 5 + 5 = 10 LaLD Engine Week 2018: 5 + 5 = 10

V10s... So Loop Hole Week LaLD Engine Week continues, will 2 straight fives positioned in a “V” make a V10?

French Friday: R4 de Tour de France French Friday: R4 de Tour de France

Another 3 inch Norev. I initially planned this one for the Tour de France last year. As Berger sirops used these as promotional vehicles in the Tour de France from 1969.

LaLD Car Week 2018: 最終的に黄色の鳥 LaLD Car Week 2018: 最終的に黄色の鳥

Now that we all found out why Friday was purple it’s time for the finale! And what better way to do just that than with a cast that matches your 1:1, like Philipilihp already showed us last Tuesday. I showed my DD before with a MBX but I have quite some casts of my beloved JDM Nissan Be-1 as well.

LALD CAR WEEK 2018 Black- Pikes Peak Rocket LALD CAR WEEK 2018 Black- Pikes Peak Rocket

For today’s feature I am showing off a Norev. A Black Peugeot 208 T16 pikes peak showroom model to be precise.

French Friday: Le Petit Camionnette Renault French Friday: Le Petit Camionnette Renault

Two weeks ago we took a look at the progenitor of all modern European-style compact vans—the Citroen Berlingo and Peugeot Partner. Today’s machine was right on the heels of that iconic pair: Renault’s Kangoo, released only a year after PSA’s two vans. While Renault may have been fudging a bit to come up with a…

Moose love the snow Moose love the snow

It never EVER snows in my side of the world. It has done it 3 times this season so far. Moose in their natural habitat!

French Friday: Partnering with the Berlingo French Friday: Partnering with the Berlingo

The French have a knack for making charming cars. Even in this age of homogeneity and relative blandness, the French are able to carve out characterful little machines that may not be fast or particularly nimble, but are cute and whimsical: the Citroen C4 Cactus; the Renault Twizy; the Citroen E-Mehari. Yet this has…

French Friday: Dakar!!! French Friday: Dakar!!!

As a tradition I’m sharing a contender of the greatest rally raid in the world during the event itself: Paris-Dakar! Last year it was the LWB 205 T16 Grand Raid, this year it’s the Citroën ZX Rallye Raid. Which in fact was the successor of the 205T16 Grand Raid’s successor, the 405T16.

French Friday: L'histoire de l'Espace French Friday: L'histoire de l'Espace

Matra’s relationship with the French Big Three has always been one of political rife and strife, yet highlighted with many brilliant cars that resulted from subsequent partnerships with PSA and Renault. The Matra-Simca range produced masterpieces such as the Bagheera, Murena, and Rancho. However, Matra would go on to…

French Friday: Clio V6 part trois French Friday: Clio V6 part trois

After being active here for a few years now you get into the situation many models have passed already, even when you’re doing mainly French/German cars. It’s not that I can’t show new models but the Renault Clio V6 I’ve shown before.
